    Beijing hopes it will settle trade rows with Washington through talks.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — Beijing is confident its trade rows with Washington can be settled through talks, and is ready to cooperate with the new US administration, a Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman said Thursday.

    "China believes it can find solutions to disputes with the United States through dialogue and consultations," spokesman Sun Jiwen told reporters at a press briefing.

    US President-elect Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized China for its "unfair" trade practices and threatened to impose a high blanket tariff on Chinese goods.

    But the Chinese commerce official said Thursday China wanted to promote "stable and healthy" trade relations with Trump’s incoming administration to make profit for both economies.

    Trump will be sworn in this Friday.
